Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Non-Dead: beloved 60's albums

Just for kicks, I’d like to tap into the collective consciousness of the board. I was reading through some older Light Into Ashes posts, and came across a “Dead vs. Zeppelin” thread that sparked a few people to name favorite older LPs that they loved – some being lesser known albums (e.g. from William Tell – Neil Young’s Everybody Knows This is Nowhere). I have a hunch that if I navigate a bit further into the 60’s, there are surely some albums that would blow me away. I’ll offer up 3 albums that I just familiarized myself with in the past year (Note – or perhaps Disclaimer – I was born in 1971):

1) Moby Grape (self-titled)
2) The Byrds: Fifth Dimension
3) Love Is The Song We Sing: San Francisco Nuggets (1965-1970). This is a new compilation, which is kind of cheating :--}

The LPs from the big acts of the day – Stones, Beatles, Zep, Doors, Dylan, Who, Hendrix – like for most people, are well-trodden ground for me. If anyone cares to share 60’s (or early 70’s) albums that you love, but which perhaps never became megahits, I would be grateful.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Not sure if this was ever an official release.I got it at a music store in Geneva,NY-which is in the Finger Lakes region,where my family has a little cottage on Seneca Lake-but I like "Jerry Garcia/Jefferson Airplane HouseJam"
SB recording of 10/28/69 with tracks 7-9 being from Fillmore West(6/7/69).Don't know how accurate this info is but like it nonetheless.

1.I've Been All Around This World
2.Big Boss Man
3.Blues Jam
4.Jam
5.Noodling
6.Viola Lee Jam
7.Dire Wolf
8.Dupree's Diamond Blues
9.Mountains Of the Moon

Jerry Garcia
Jack Casady
Spencer Dryden
Jorma Kaukonen

By the way I would hasten to mention that Jorma's "Quah" is a favorite of mine."I'll Be All Right" got me through some of the most trying times of my life.Of course "Genesis" is top-shelf too.

In the Neil Young section:

Neil Young/Neil Young-1969(first solo)

Journey Through The Past-1972

Time Fades Away-1973

On The Beach-1974

Zuma-1975

All of these are records I used to play the hell out of as a kid just getting into the Classic Rock genre.I don't believe any were hits at all.Neil is still, and always will be my most cherished solo artist.
Seeing him for only my second time Dec.15th at MSG-can't come too soon!

One more that I don't think made it big-

Bob Dylan-"Planet Waves"(1974)

It's late early 70's (if that makes sense) Quah, Jorma Kaukonen and Tom Hobson. Great acoustic guitar album. Another recommendation of an interesting album that never really went anywhere is Slick and Kantner's Baron von Tollbooth and the Chrome Nun...Garcia plays guitar, along with others. To round out the three, try Zappa's Freak Out! Really amazing stuff for 1966.

"Parthenogenesis" off of Living The Blues by Canned Heat is an amazing medley.

And of course their best known "On The Road Again"

Talk about a band with a frenetic history - the first two years make Sybil look stable.

Neil Young - Tonight's the Night - was recorded in 1973 but initially rejected by Young's record company (a running theme in Young's career)was finaly released in 1975.

I would also have to concur with the NoiseCollector on FZ's endeavours but would have continued a bit further into the early 70's. Cause nobody writes or plays like Frank...

Thank you ALL for your responses, and I hope they spark others to explore a new album or two. Too many to comment on, but I’m glad to have found a wide variety of genres to choose from. Think I’ll start with Vanilla Fudge, Quah, Interstellar Space and see where that takes me. None of the posts (not even from you crazy Zappa heads) will be neglected.
